Happy MONDAY!! Today started off awesome with a 7 mile trail run! I’ve been a little worried about my narcolepsy. If you don’t know what that is, look it up (: I don’t think one can live a vacation lifestyle, stay at home Mom of 5 kids lifestyle, and a running like crazy exercise lifestyle at the same time without symptoms of narcolepsy! Lately, this is me on most days!
We’ve taken our kids everywhere, been to concerts, out to lunch, up mountains, and down rivers. Here we are at a few outings this past week!
My favorite day trip was a visit to my Aunt and Uncle’s cabin in Provo canyon. A childhood favorite filled with memories. We hiked up a mountain that was falling apart! We floated down the Provo river on tubes with my 80 year old uncle and cousins. I was proud that I got all 5 of my children down the river safely! I can’t say my diet has been totally clean these days! It’s been too much fun to snack and enjoy yummy summer food. I think that’s fine if you don’t stay off the wagon for long. I’m going to try and keep it in check this week so I can fit into my favorite white pants for my parent’s 50th wedding anniversary party on Saturday! You’ll have to see if I made my goal by what I’m wearing! I am lucky that I’ll be running 16 miles that day!
After my 15 miler last week, I realized this is the ultimate post workout stretch!!
It was a great run! I didn’t feel super strong, but at one time during the run, my fastie friend told me to slow down! What a compliment!
Onto my advice for how to fit into a favorite pair on pants! Besides running and lifting, which you should do EVERY day as effective and strong as possible, you should fill your body with good fuel! I follow a fitness enthusiast that helps keep me motivated. She’s real close to my height and build. Her name is Erin Simmons.
When I get in a non healthy eating rut, I pull out inspirational people’s eating plans. She also has amazing abs! Here is a great video for abs that I want to try too!

Next adventure on the list is a 2 day trip to Bear Lake. This one will be relaxing, read a book condo style trip. I still want to run or do a killer workout such as 10 sets of 30 burpees and 30 situps!! I read that workout on Erin Simmons’ blog! GEEZ!! I just might try it. Scary (:
